It was, by far, the best red velvet anything I've had ... which is a feat since I pretty much eat red velvet anywhere it's available and I'm super picky.
It got me thinking. At the bridal expo the other day, we sampled six cakes and I wasn't impressed with a single one. I wouldn't serve any of them to my guests. I'm kind of a dessert snob. Pete, he doesn't know a homemade cake from a box cake. They're all the same to him. By my pallet, it knows desserts.
And this cupcake ... it's what memories are made of.
So what if I went against a traditional wedding cake and got cupcakes from this shop?
It's the trendy thing to do right now. In fact, it's exactly what my friend Mallory did at her wedding this summer.
She had a small cake ... and that's the one they cut and stuffed in each other's faces. But everyone else had a delicious cupcake. It was perfect. After a cocktail hour and dinner, you don't have much room for a traditional cake. But I've never heard a single person ever say they don't have room for a cupcake.
Cupcakes are the in thing but cakes are traditional. So, I open this to you.
